US Powerball Offers $149 Million Jackpot for Saturday’s Draw
Wednesday’s Powerball draw failed to produce any jackpot winners and this means that on Saturday there is a huge $149 million jackpot up for grabs. If the jackpot is won and the winner takes the cash option they will receive $90.7 million.
The winning numbers on Wednesday were 2, 14, 39, 40, 43 and the Powerball was 13. While there were no jackpot winners there were two players, in Los Angeles and New York, who matched the five regular numbers to win $1 million each. In total there were 594,455 winners and they shared prizes totalling $7,060,257.
The Powerball draw awards prizes to any player that matches at least the Powerball, without the Powerball payers must match at least three regular numbers to win a prize. Using the Power Play option costs an extra $1 but can increase payouts by as much as 5x.
